F-M St.Patrick's Day Parade

$3,000 goal

Campaign created 12 months ago
The F-M St. Pat's Parade is completely a volunteer group.  This group is responsible for organizing and making sure the parade is held each year.  Many of you may not know, but a parade is not free.  Even though we have been advertising each year that to be in the parade is free, the actual parade is not.  We have to raise money each and every year!  Donations are drying up and we are at a crossroads as to whether we can hold the parade or not each year. 

Our costs we raise money 100% for:
1. Insurance.
2. Street Barricades and labor to put them up and take them down along the route to ensure the safety of our parade spectators and participants.
3. Flag Permit as well as labor to put the Irish/US Flags up and down on Broadway.
4. Advertising to let everyone know Date and Time of the parade through various media outlets.
5. Donations to the various organizations that help us each year because without them, the parade wouldn't happen.
6. Various administrative needs that show up at the last minute.

So you can see it's not an easy task and we rely 100% on donations to make this happen each and every year.  A lot of times our parade committee spend their own personal funds to cover costs in the hope of being reimbursed after the parade. 

Each year is a gamble as to if we can raise enough money in time as we only raise enough money to cover costs.  We hope that you will consider a donation to help the parade happen this year and years to come!

Parade is coming soon, March 16, 2019!

Thank you so very much,
